One of the first Dwarven nations. It began with settlements in the Dragon Spine Mountains around 3150BL. Garnedhren was its capital. After being driven out by the Blackfire Cabal, Iron Clan allied with the young Wind Elves they met upon the Deriel plains. This agreement was reached by King Hvalig with the elf Tivhiri. Upon returning to the Dragon Spine, they found their settlements abandoned by the Blackfire Cabal, and reconstruction began on Garnedhren.
The dwarves rebuilt the city, including a section of the city for the elves, designed by King Hvalig's own hand. There was peace between elf and dwarf for almost 400 years until a series of events led Morganae's uprising, and the destruction of the Iron Kingdom. This event led to Garnedhren being renamed Elamiri and the formation of the Mountain Elves.
